Hotel Saskatchewan is where the Queen stays whenever she's in town, so you know it's swanky.
Rocking up on the Friday, we were the only ones there at first, but hey, you can't keep the British from their afternoon tea! It's a gorgeous hotel with a luxurious feel. And if it's good enough for Her Majesty, it's good enough for Charlotte and I.
As we perused the menu, we got munching on our first course: fresh strawberries with chantilly cream. And I'll tell you this now; from now on, there is no other way that I want to be greeted in a restaurant.
After a few minutes, we were greeted with this beauty.
Everything was delicious and well made, and I was especially impressed with the strawberry butter, which must be spread over EVERYTHING.
At only $28, this afternoon tea was an absolute bargain for its craft and taste alone, and the staff so helpfully you felt completely relaxed. In fact we stayed there till most of the other guests who came in had left, slowly making our way through the mountains of cake and tea.
Hotel Saskatchewan, you do a damn good afternoon tea.
